About the tour

Did you know Porto's settlement started on the top of the hill? Where the city used to be fortified? And that for almost three centuries the city belonged to the powerful catholic Bishops? Get your good walking shoes and come along with me, from the 12th century ronanesque Cathedral, ancient stronghold, all the way downwards the river Douro. Let's discover, nice and slowly, the narrow and steep granite medieval streets of this mytical old neighborhood: Sé. A place where history pops out in every corner and the soul of our ancestors is displayed in the pitoresque details of each single street.
